Liger X is the world’s first auto-balancing Scooter. It enhances safety and comfort for 2-wheeler riders. The riders don’t need to put their feet down when they stop. Auto-balancing helps new riders adopt two wheelers faster. The rider can elegantly use the reverse gear without having to back pedal.
Liger X will come in two variants
Liger X – INR 1,00,000 – 1,10,000*
Liger X+ – INR 1,30,000 – 1,40,000*
(does not include taxes and FAME II/state subsidies which may be applicable at the time of launch)
In Eco Mode, the Liger X runs for fuel economy, while sport mode offers faster acceleration. The Reverse mode allows pulling the vehicle elegantly out of the parking lot or pulling back when the rider overruns the stop. The learner mode is specifically designed for new riders, looking to build confidence in riding a 2-wheeler.
Liger X is available in 5 colors – Grey, Polar White, Blue, Titanium, Red
Liger X is currently under testing and homologation. We are working towards making our first Deliveries by Diwali
We will be opening Pre-Orders for users to book Liger X in the coming months. At present people can visit our website and express their interest.

Liger-X is designed for two riders of 75 kg each. The total weight of 150 kg + vehicle curb weight + margins.
Liger-X comes with a unique patented technology, which allows the vehicle to work in Auto-balancing as well as regular mode. The switch between modes can be made instantaneously.
Balancing mode is used at low speeds and at stops. Regular mode is used when the Balancing feature is not required. The vehicle can lean and turn like a regular vehicle.
Balancing is strong enough to sway a riderless vehicle on the side stand (leaning at 10 degrees) to vertical (0 degrees). Technically, there is no limitation on the strength of Balancing. It is quite configurable. For the present version we have chosen a configuration which provides optimal cost vs benefit.
The mode can be controlled by the user with a switch. The vehicle sound indicates to the user that the vehicle is in Balancing mode or Regular mode.
Also, the display indicates the status of Balancing.
Liger-X weighs close to 100 Kg
Liger-X+ weighs under 110 Kg
Honda, Yamaha, BMW, Lit motors have unveiled concept vehicles. We are not aware of their commercialization timelines.
Auto-Balancing is the building block for autonomous and remote driven two wheelers, which are relevant for improving operational efficiency and customer experience in Shared Mobility markets. Autonomous Two wheelers also have applications in the defence sector.
Liger is a very unique member of the Cat family. It’s the biggest cat and also very rare. It’s a hybrid of Lion and Tiger. We chose the name Liger because we set out with vision to bring some comfort of 4 wheelers to the convenience of Two wheelers.
The Liger X has a range of 60 km in Eco Mode on a full charge. Liger X also comes with a removable battery
While Liger X+ has a range of 100 km in Eco mode.
The range obtained by a user shall depend on factors such as: age of the battery, road and traffic conditions, tyre condition and inflation, riding style, load on the vehicle, use of electrical accessories such as lamps and horn and mobile phone charging etc.
Liger X comes with liquid cooled batteries, which are compliant to the latest AIS 156 standards – the most stringent certification global standards for batteries. High quality cells, efficient cooling, Robust Battery Management System (BMS), cell balancing all make Liger X battery packs longer lasting and safer.
You may use any normal 220V, 5A, 3 pin earthed socket to Charge your Liger X with the provided Liger X charger. In such a case, the consumer is responsible for any damage to the Liger X onboard equipment due to voltage above 270V rms or any other electrical issues or malfunction at charging place.
In addition, you may purchase a Liger X branded home charging Box, that protects your charging cable and Liger X from voltage and current surges from the electricity supply line. It also secures your Liger X charging cable so that it can be connected and disconnected only by the owner. While it is not compulsory for you to purchase a home charging box, it is strongly recommended that you do so.
How long does the battery last in a Liger X electric scooter?
The Liger X comes with a liquid cooled battery which is designed to last for 1500-2000 cycles which normally takes 10 years, provided the user ensures the lithium-ion battery is kept charged above 15% of capacity and used regularly. We offer a warranty of 3 years or 50000 kms (whichever comes earlier).
Liger X with 60 km range, can run for 60,000-100,000kms.
Liger X+ with 100 km range, can run for 100,000-150,000kms.
In all lithium-ion battery Electric Vehicles the battery capacity, and hence specified range, reduces with time, use and cumulative charge-discharge cycles. A lithium-ion Battery is considered acceptable and within specified life when it has up to 70% capacity of a brand-new battery. Post the same, the old battery can be sold or used in static applications and replaced by purchasing a new battery.
Buying a new evolving category like electric scooters can be daunting. To address some of your concerns related to safety of the Liger X whether it be while charging, in parking or in an unforeseen circumstance, we have put together some answers to questions that you may have.
While designing the Liger X, safety of the rider and vehicle is of paramount consideration. There have been conscious choices made at every step to ensure a safe & incident-free ownership experience.
Liger X uses high quality advanced chemistry Lithium-Ion cells sourced directly from only reputed top-quality manufacturers in the world. We validate cell consistency and use automated sorting and batching prior to battery assembly. Within the battery itself, we use multiple internal safety measures like a Current Interruption Device that isolates the cell in any event of specific malperformance.
We have strived to strike the right balance between battery safety, battery life and performance delivery in the Liger X. The Battery Management System and the Liger central vehicle computer work together to deliver the appropriate performance
while monitoring battery health to prevent the occurrence of any undesirable outcomes.
Liger X uses an integrated on-board charger to ensure that there is no potential misuse of the charger and charging parameters. Safety features like automatic earth detection, broken neutral detection, voltage and current surge isolation are implemented internally within the vehicle itself with no dependence on outside equipment. Further, Liger X prohibits use of fast charging to ensure that the battery is never in the range where safety could potentially be compromised.
Liger X is a ground up design for the hot, dusty and varied Indian environment. Apart from IP67 water resistance rating, carefully chosen battery chemistry and Custom electronics that built to meet the robust demands of India commuters
Any automobile is susceptible to risk due to the inherent energy density of the fuel stored in the vehicle’s energy storage unit (similar to a tank of petrol present in most automobiles). Liger X stores its energy – electricity- in its battery and is designed to operate safely and reliably in all seasons and terrains, provided the following basic care is taken by users.
Charging must be done in dry conditions from a sheltered and earthed standard 3 pin plug point in good condition with a 10A rated MCB for protection. This is essential for safety and installation of the charging point should be done by a competent electrician. Where possible, Liger X recommends use of industrial socket complying with IEC 60309 (15A, single-phase)
Liger X is sold with its own charging cable that has inbuilt safety devices to isolate the vehicle and charger in-case there is any earthing leakage or isolation. The Charging cable is a primary safety device supporting IEC 60309 industrial standard with a Snap-On adapter for the standard household 3 pin 5A socket. Never use any other cable for charging! You are welcome to purchase additional OEM charging cables from your Liger X dealership, if you desire.
Any vehicle is prone to deterioration with use. This is due to the effect of wear and tear, temperature, moisture etc. Only a Liger X Authorised workshop / technician / service partner has all the necessary tools and qualified technicians to check and restore your vehicle hardware and software to its technically correct condition.
